Radiocrafts has been a pioneer in developing RF modules for 169 MHz technology with several hundred thousand modules already deployed. Radiocrafts can also assist in design of 169 MHz equipment, we have a long experience in antenna and power management designs needed for a successful design project.
The 169 MHz band allows for good performance in terms of coverage, building penetration, and consumption of battery, while still ensuring a sufficient bitrate. This is important in applications such as smart metering where these meters are often stored in basements or in metal cabinets where propagation conditions are poor. Radiocrafts' 169MHz modules were designed for robust and professional operation.
Radiocrafts latest product, Wize, is a 169 MHz IIoT technology designed to achieve long range, great object penetration, and long battery life. It is based on Wireless M-Bus mode N which has been used in millions of gas and water meters in commercial operation for several years. It is specially designed for deployments on a territory-wide scale which require integration in a constrained environment: metering, public lighting, energy management of buildings, smart mobility, etc.
